Brought the kids here on a lovely, warm October day. The staff was so friendly and our meal was good. The kids meals were served in a plastic Halloween bucket (a jack-o-lantern). Very cute! Would definitely stop again! So convenient to Hole in the Wall...More

Great selection of ice cream, chocolate, fudge and other candies. They do have sugar free chocolates. If that’s not for you there is a nice selection snack bar items with salads and burgers and sandwiches. Great location as you stroll along the beach or downtown...More

It’s like stepping back in time. The seating wasn’t comfortable but the food was yummy. It’s all about the sweet tooth! Candy galore! I’m looking forward to brining my niece, great niece and great nephew here although it will put a hurting on my wallet!

It's worth going to support a local business. I have never had food here and can really only speak to disappointment in the cost of the desserts.The ice cream is okay, but not worth the price. Even worse are the smoothies which cost $5.45 plus...More

I was under the impression that this was a restaurant, not a snack counter with 4 teenagers running the show. Very slow service and garbage food. Gave 2 stars for the candy area. Otherwise it’s a no for me.
